Mayor Bill de Blasio is again telling people in parts of Brooklyn to get vaccinated against the measles.
He said people who don’t could be fined $1,000.
“We don’t want to have to fine people, but we will give the violation and proceed toward the fine for anyone who defies the order to get a vaccination because they are endangering other people,” Mayor de Blasio said.
He said the vaccination is easy to get and readily available.
“It’s available for whatever people can pay, it’s even free if people can’t afford it, if they have insurance they are covered,” de Blasio said.
